List Criteria: Vote for your favorite movies starring Paul Rudd.

What’s better than a marathon session of the best Paul Rudd movies? Nothing—except for maybe a marathon of the Mac and Me. Okay, maybe not so much of the latter if you want comedy. But which Paul Rudd movies should you put in your marathon? To help you choose, fans have ranked the best movies he’s starred in.

For this list, Paul Rudd doesn’t necessarily have to be the main protagonist, just have starred in the movie with more than a cameo appearance. For example, even though he’s not the hero of Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy, that’s one of his best movies. After all, who can forget the scene with his odorous scent, Sex Panther. We’ve heard that it smells like Bigfoot’s taint.

Since then, he’s gone to be a leading man with roles in I Love You Man and Ant-Man. The latter movie brought a ton of brevity to the Marvel Cinematic Universe franchise. In fact, his cameo in Captain America: Civil War was one of the funniest scenes ever. But are those two high-grossing movies really his best work?

So help choose the best Paul Rudd movies by voting for the ones you like the most below. If you don’t see a particular movie starring him listed, be sure to add it so that others can vote on it. And be sure to check out these interesting Paul Rudd facts if you want to find out why he’s associated with that bad ‘80s movie Mac and Me.

Judd Apatow and Baz Luhrmann are among those who have directed Paul Rudd at one point or another during their careers in the film industry. If Paul Rudd movies are your thing, then check out the greatest movies by Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Ryan Gosling too.
